NFL Trade Rumors:
Mike Garafolo reports that the Giants released LB Michael Boley on Tuesday.
Garafolo adds that the move was somewhat surprising given that they could have approached him regarding a pay cut.
Boley, 30, was benched for the final three games of the season, so his $4.25 million salary was an obvious target to be cut. He signed a five-year, $25 million contract back in 2009. This move will save the Giants $3.1 million in cap space, according Adam Caplan.
Pro Football Focus rated him as one of the worst qualifying 4-3 outside linebackers in the league.

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw recently underwent another foot procedure. I believe’ts it’s his third in roughly three or four years. It’s clear he’s breaking down and the Giants could decide to cut him instead of carrying his $3.75 million contract into the 2013 season, since they’re going to be over the salary cap heading into the new league year.

The moves allow the club to get under the salary cap now, and potentially free up cash later for more important assets like WRs Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz. And if you are a fan of the laundry, you'...
